Modi to address rally from ramparts of 'Lal Qila' replica in Chhattisgarh

Ambikapur, Sept 7 (ANI): Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi will address a rally in Ambikapur in Chhattisgarh today, in the run-up to assembly elections to be held in the state later this year.

The rally will be held from 3 p.m., and is a part of Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh's state-wide "Vikas Yatra".

The Gujarat chief Minister will address participants from the ramparts of a replica of Delhi's "Lal Qila" or Red Fort.

Ambikapur is located in the state's Sarguja District, and is about 250 kilometers from state capital Raipur.

On September 5, Modi said his main priority is to serve the people of Gujarat till 2017.

"We shouldn't dream about becoming something but doing something. I have been given a mandate till 2017 by people of Gujarat and will continue to serve you," Modi told a class10 boy in Gandhinagar, when asked if he would return soon to address the students as the Prime Minister.

Modi was addressing the students in Gandhinagar on the occasion of Teacher's Day.

Modi, who has been elevated as the BJP's poll panel chief, is considered by many to be the party's face for the next general elections.

The BJP has, however, not officially endorsed his candidature yet. (ANI)
